HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT SPOTLIGHT ON @ HOME CLASSES

“I thoroughly enjoyed attending La Jolla Playhouse’s virtual class, Landmark Moments in Musical Theatre. I looked forward with great anticipation to each class session. The history of musical theatre presentations, conversations with like-minded musical theatre lovers, and challenge ‘homework’ of watching musicals in my spare time were all exciting and thought-provoking. I loved learning about the origins of the genre, as well as discussing some long-time favorites. Thanks, LJP, for providing such a wonderful experience in this tumultuous time!– Amy Kinseth, Landmark Moments in Musical Theater Student

“It was LIFE giving!” – Acting Student

“I’ve really enjoyed and benefitted from these offerings. Thank you so much.” – Playwriting Student

“I wrote my first One Act Play! It’s such an achievement for me. Thank you!” – Playwriting Student

“I enjoyed it 100%.” – Playwriting Student

“I can’t thank you enough for this opportunity for my son. He was fully included and embraced by the instructor and other students…. I don’t know if you know how groundbreaking it is to include a student with autism in your mainstream classes. No one else is doing this, to my knowledge…. I have always enjoyed LJP’s quality productions, but will now offer even more support, like buying season tickets when you re-open.” – Mother of an Acting Student

“The class was uplifting and positive during this most difficult time.” – Landmark Moments in Musical Theatre Student

“Very caring teacher who balanced the class experience really well!” – Landmark Moments in Musical Theatre Student

“Pure joy.” – Landmark Moments in Musical Theatre Student

“I absolutely enjoyed myself! Thanks for getting Christopher Ashley, He was delightful.” – Landmark Moments in Musical Theatre Student
